SSRS 2005 Security

MrDavidThorn used Ask the Experts™
Hi Experts

Im new to the security side of SSRS and have a problem when creating a new subscription from a report, My reports data source uses SQL authentication and has an account will full access, the report runs sucsessfully viewing from SSMS -However, when I create a subscription for the report - I get the error message

The current action cannot be completed because the user data source credentials that are required to execute this report are not stored in the report server database. (rsInvalidDataSourceCredentialSetting)
However I believe this error message to be incorrect as my SQL account is stored on the SQL server - is there something that Im missing?
